I agree, Ol'ster... As I have poined out, I was a social worker in "adult services" when deinstitutionalization hit and it was a nightmare then and it is a nightmare now... There just aren't the services out there for the number of folks who need them... This comes down to money and as long as we have the right owning the media then count this issue just one of many on their list of things that we are not going to talk about...

This is 100% about media ownership because, unlike the 60s and 70s when we had lots of documentaries about serious issues, the tables have turned and Boss "Rupert" Hogg has gobbled it all up and in doing so has squashed real debate... All we hear is Boss Hog's side...
